I AM astounded to learn of the suggestion that The King’s School may have its status changed to an academy. It must be an April Fools joke!
If not, have the powers-that-be in Grantham completely lost their marbles? Is there some sinister plot to downgrade Grantham even further?
Don’t they realise The King’s Grammar School is the last remaining asset Grantham has? Its grammar status attracts families from far and wide. Families move to settle in its catchment area and these people buy houses and spend money in the town.
To change The King’s School status is madness. Please will somebody assure us that the rumours are untrue?
